Tried and Tested: An Amazing Source for Designer Pillows

Hi everyone!  Just popping in today to share a wonderful Etsy store for designer pillows.  I first heard about this source from blogger Emily A. Clark.  It wasn’t until I ordered one for myself, that I decided to share it with my lovely readers.  Gotta test the goods, right?

The source is called Sweety Store (cheesy, I know).  They have a wonderful selection of designer pillow covers for VERY affordable prices (starting at about $14.99).  I was worried that they would look or feel cheap or look like knock offs, given the price, but I am pleased to say that they are high quality.

Here is the pillow cover I ordered in Kelly Wearstler’s Channels pattern.

Here are a few other patterns I am swooning over.

The shipping was really fast considering they are coming from China.  If you need pillow inserts, my favorite are these from Ikea.  They are down and only $9.99.

We are heading off on vacation next week, but I still hope to post.  Vacation at last!

My New Favorite Source for Treasure Hunting

Hi all!!  If you have been around here for a while, you know that I love a good estate sale.  Some of my favorite finds have come from our local estate sales.  I am on the list for several estate sale companies who send me emails regarding upcoming sales with pictures of the items included.  I am hooked.

That is why I was so excited to discover an online estate sale site.  It is called Everything But The House.  I have been spending hours at night searching this site.  They are in many cities around the United States, although they also ship to you.

Here are some of favorite things on their site this week.  Some items have a bid of only $1.  Crazy, right?

These malachite trinket boxes are such a conversation starter adding a pop of color and interest to any space.

 

This faux bamboo mid-century modern end table is just so glam.

These chairs are such a classic sillhouette.  I imagine them lacquered in a shiny white and upholstered in a few bright pattern.

This umbrella stand is just too chic.  Chinoiserie print combine with Greek key- yes please!

EBTH is an amazing source for vintage rugs.  I am always on the lookout for these.

How fun are these red rattan bistro chairs?  They could work indoors or outside.

EBTH also has jewelry and designer clothing and handbags in addition to home decor.  My only negative is that sometimes shipping can get really high, so expect that if you are bidding on a large item.  If you are local, you can also pick up to avoid shipping costs altogether.

My rule of thumb when it comes to decorating is that it has to look collected. Shopping at estate sales is the perfect way to find those types of unique and collected one-of-a-kind pieces.

Have you every shopped at EBTH?  Are you an estate sale junkie?  If so, let us know in the comments what your favorite treasure has been!

Until next time,

Have you tried Framebridge???

I am so excited today to share with you an awesome source for custom online framing.  If you haven’t heard of them, Framebridge offers the most unique and amazing frames and makes the entire process entirely seamless.

We had taken family photos last fall and per usual, I had done nothing with them.  I was excited to try Framebridge as I had heard rave reviews about them from other bloggers.

They make it beyond easy.  First, you pick out your frame.  They have an amazing selection of frames that you can’t find anywhere else.  I chose this gold bamboo frame called “Mandalay “ for my photo.  This frame had me at “hello.” If you have been around here for a while, you know my obsession with faux bamboo!

Next, you either upload a photo or mail in a physical photo or piece of art.  Don’t worry, they send you a secure pre-paid mailer to mail in your piece.  Within days, they mail you your beautifully framed artwork.

Here are the girls holding our framed family photo.

Here is the frame once it made its way to our wall.  Don’t you think it complements my favorite blue and white wallpaper well?

Here are a few other frame choices I really like.  I am really obsessed with this burl wood frame, which is so in right now.  I have a few ideas for things I might frame in this.  I mean, seriously, where else can you get a burl wood frame??

I could not be more pleased with the process, service and craftsmanship at Framebridge.  If you are waiting to frame that perfect piece of art or family photos, or to create that gallery wall, look no further.  And, just for my readers, I have an exclusive promo code for you to save 15% off your first Framebridge purchase.  Just enter decoratingdelirium15 at checkout!

Until next time . . .

Ballard Designs Spring 2017

Hi friends!  I have to say that after a cold, wet winter here in California, seeing the Spring catalogs appear at my doorstep was a very welcomed sight.

Of particular interest to me were the fun tropical and vibrant hues in the Ballard Designs catalog. Here are my favorite pics from Ballard’s new collection.

Bench / Art Print / Lamp Finials / Bamboo Drapery Clips / Mirror / Pagoda

I really adore the white pagoda and am seriously contemplating getting a pair to go with my collection of blue and white ginger jar.

Also, I adore these two finds for the outdoor.  The patio umbrella is too chic and the garden finials could be used indoors or out.

 

 

What about you?  Has anything in the Spring home decor catalogs caught your eye?

A Bohemian Update

Hi everyone!  Happy Presidents Day.  While most of you have been enjoying leisurely activities an outdoor adventures with your loved ones this holiday weekend, I have spent mine tweaking my living room.  Call me crazy.

If you have been following the blog for a while, you know that my living room tends to lean toward the traditional.  I have been wanting to give it an eclectic and global influence for a while now.  When I was contact by Kilim Pillow Store and Unique Rug Store, I leaped at the chance to try out their rugs and pillows in my space.

You simply have to check out their sites.  If you want to add a layered, collected look or a global vibe to your home, they are the source!  I could spend hours perusing through their sites.

Here is the overdyed Persian rug I selected in our living room.  I just love the  deep, saturated color.

Here are some of my other favorites from Unique Rugs.

Here is the Kilim Pillow from Kilim Pillow Store.  The one I selected is so vibrant an colorful.  Each pillow is fashioned from an unused Kilim rug that is 30-40 years old.

Here are some other gorgeous options from the Kilim Pillow Store site.

What do you think?  I think even the most traditional room needs something bohemian and eclectic to add some interest and personality to a space.

Head on over to Unique Rug Store and Kilim Pillow Store to see their truly unique products.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Until next time . . .

Decorating with Birch Logs

Hi Friends!  This time of year, I am all about creating a simple, cozy home.  It must be the weather, but I can’t wait to get home at night and cozy up by the fire.

While they have been popular for a while, I just love the way natural birch logs look in a fireplace or used as part of holiday decor.  They are classic, neutral and pair well with any style.

Alice Lane Home

I love they way they bring brightness to a dark space, like a fireplace.

Via Magnolia Market

Via Lolori Rugs

Via Confetti and Stripes

They are an excellent choice when creating holiday vignettes.

 

Via Setting for Four

I have been known to scavenge my neighborhood for birch branches after a storm.  So obviously, I was so pleased when HedgeScapes sent me some perfectly cut birch logs to review.

I used them on my holiday porch here.  I have a special place in my heart for my “scavenged” birch branches, but the logs from HedgeScapes were perfectly cut and the exact same size.  The made for a much more polished display.

Hedgescapes has a variety of faux hedges and plants, including my favorite snake plants and fiddle leaf figs.

What do you think?  Have you ever used birch logs in your decor or brought a piece of nature inside to enjoy.

Until next time. . .

Our 2016 Holiday Card with Tiny Prints

Hi friends!!  I am so excited to have received our 2016 holiday cards from Tiny Prints.  I am in LOVE with them.

I bit the bullet this year and got professional photographs taken.  I haven’t done that since my girls were 3 and 1. Let me tell you, it was a challenging photo shoot when they were that young, and we truly only got one good shot of all of us.  Shall I say I was a bit too confident this year.  I thought to myself, “This is going to be a breeze now that they are 7 and 5.”  “Wrong,” I say now back to my smug self!

About 5 minutes into the shoot, my girls were lovingly hugging for one of the photos.  Then the photographer says, “Now make a funny face.”  My 5-year old Audrey proceeds to jump up, hitting my 7-year old Charlotte in the jaw, causing her to bust open her lip.  This is blood gushing all over the outfits I painstakingly planned to match but not be to “matchy-matchy”(everyone is as neurotic as me and does this, right?)  Then, to make matters worse, while my husband and I are taking solo shots (to let the bleeding stop, of course), Audrey proceeds to get into my purse and “apply” my lipstick all over her face.  I don’t think I will take professional photos for another two years!

That being said, our photos and our cards still turned out lovely.

This year, I went with a very simple card that speaks for itself.  I really wanted the photo to shine. We went with a personalized gold foil option and it is so chic.  Tiny Prints has an amazing selection of holiday cards, especially unique ones such as personalized foil, glitter and laser cut that are hard to find anywhere else.

It’s not too late to order cards or personalized gifts from Tiny Prints!.  You can see their entire selection here in their digital catalog.  Now I just need to get to addressing all of mine!

I hope that you and yours are truly enjoying your holiday season so far.

Until next time . . .
